Friends of the Earth are no friends of people
Friends of the Earth would rather that you all wear home spun natural fibers grown on the plot of land assigned to you by them. A plot of land that you eek out an existence on using rocks tied to sticks since any form of metal would require smelting and that in turn requires use of some fuel. They of course would live in their towers overseeing all the peasants toiling on the soil since they are the arbiters of what true and politically correct sustainable ecosystems are. Humm, I think I have seen this sort of thing in the history books, maybe, yes I remember now, it was the life of serfs under the nobles of Europe. I would like FOE (interesting how that TLA comes out :-0) expects to feed 7 billion people and rising without the use of some sort of fuel. Well I guess they probably don't. (see starving kids in Somalia)
